Historic buildings expert on council
Published 04/08/14



AN expert on historic buildings has been co-opted on to Benson Parish Council.

Rob Workman, 34, who runs consultants Lime and Listed, was chosen ahead of the three other candidates, Steve Appleton, Nick Duncan and Fiona Lovesey.

Mr Workman, of Brook Street, Benson, said: “I can’t wait to try to help the community and do something good for the village.”

He said he wanted to put his professional skills to use as a councillor.

“There have been quite a few buildings and homes in the village that I feel should be listed that haven’t been,” he said.


“I would quite like to see more of the historic properties in the village become listed before people do things to them.”

Mr Workman, who has lived in the village for six years, helped set up an action group for residents concerned about their homes being flooded.

The vacancy on the council arose following the death of Donald Fletcher, 86, in April.

Councillor Fletcher was chairman of the council from 1975 to 1980. He was also involved in the distribution of the Benson Bulletin, was a member of the Benson and Ewelme branch of the Royal British Legion and helped set up Benson Youth Club.
